As previously reported, for certain consumer and employment arbitrations, Senate Bill 20-93 would have:
- Prohibited the waiver of standards for and challenges for evident partiality prior to a claim being filed and required any waiver of such provisions after the claim is filed to be in writing;
- Provided that the right of a party to challenge an arbitrator based on evident partiality is waived if not raised within a reasonable time of learning of the information leading to the challenge but that such right is not waived if caused by the opposing party;
- Established ethical standards for arbitrators; and
- Required specified public disclosures by arbitration services providers but included protections for certain confidential information.
